CLEVELAND, Miss.--At least two tornadoes touched down in Mississippi as storms moved through late Tuesday and early Wednesday. That was confirmed by survey teams from the National Weather Service late Wednesday.
Both confirmed twisters were in Bolivar County. No injuries were reported.
An EF0 was confirmed near Stringtown, with maximum winds of 75 mph. It uprooted a large tree and caused some shingle damage.
Another was an EF1 tornado, with max winds at 100 mph. That twister started about two and a half miles southwest of Skene and dissipated just before reaching Hwy. 8 near the Cleveland airport. Survey teams estimated it was 150 yards wide in some places.
Neither of those twisters were considered strong.
A strong twister did happen just across the Mississippi River in Goodwill, Louisiana, that destroyed some structures and had maximum winds of 120 mph. The EF2 did not make it into Mississippi.
There may be more info coming as survey teams complete their work.
